General Stock Discussion / Re: I'm very upset today.

This is the image that caused the problem is what I did is the one that is on the right side.
Only now did I notice that the dates almost coincided with two years of difference.

So blatant.  When I complained, the agency said unless they take my actual file and re-upload it, not much can be done about it.

"Not much can be done about it....." Yeah, right. How about rejecting the image/footage because it's too similar to creative work already accepted? I've had
my own work rejected by agencies because it was too similar to things I've submitted in the past. So are they saying it's not alright to submit similar themes I've done in the past but its alright to copy/plagiarize someone else's original work?

The agency in question should at least contact the copycat and inform them that their image/footage will be withdrawn due to copyright infringement. If they don't respect/encourage uniquely creative ideas what's the motivation for submitting to them?

You said everything. your perspective is entirely correct.

Sorry but I feel that there are people without ethics.
What do we do when we find that another shutterstock user has taken a picture just like yours and put it on sale? My picture was taken in 2015 and his picture this week. It was clearly a copy. I contacted the user and he replied that it is not forbidden to do the same ... will it be that way?
Sometimes our effort at being creative is just for others to take advantage !!
